May 18, 2013

On a soggy Spring evening Lisa and I headed to London. It was Tuesday, and the night of the Cosmopolitan Magazine Superbloggers Masterclass. I was thrilled, honoured and damn right nervous as hell to have been asked to join an illustrious panel of experts at this prestigious event. The masterclass was a complete sell-out, with two hundred enthusiastic wannabe bloggers braving wind and rain to make it to The British Museum for the two-hour panel discussion and Q&A.

Remember How I Published a Magazine?

Kat

February 24, 2013

I'm sure most of your will already know this, but last Summer we published issue two of our print magazine. Since then, and every day with out fail, my poor suffering Gareth has been packing and shipping each copy that's been ordered - by hand. There's no fancy behind the scenes action in our operation believe you me. He's become quite the regular feature in our local post office. I wonder if they take bets about what he's sending out in those shiny pink envelopes with such regularity.

A Sunday Kind of Love: Pictures of You…

Kat

August 5, 2012

It's been such an exciting week, not least of all because the photos of you lot with your Rock n Roll Bride magazines have been coming in thick and fast! I know not everyone will have got there's yet (we're packing and shipping every single one ourselves - eeek - we are getting through the orders as fast as we can!) but my inbox and twitter stream have been awash with Rock n Roll awesomeness all week! Keep your photos coming in, I'll share some more of them over the coming weeks. Here are some of my favourites from the last 7 days...

It’s Finally Here! Issue 2 of Rock n Roll Bride Print Magazine Available Now!

Kat

July 30, 2012

It's here! It's finally here! To say creating issue 2 of Rock n Roll Bride Magazine has been a labour of love would be an understatement of epic proportions. When Gareth & I made the decision late last year to create a second edition of the magazine after the unanticipated appreciation over issue 1 (which was initially conceived to just be a free handout at a wedding show), not in a million years did we think it would take so long... and take so much out of us. Dear God, I have a new found respect for everyone who works in the print industry. I won't bore you with the trials and tribulations we've had along the way, but rest assured that magazines are hard work. But when 50-odd boxes of something we created were delivered to our house on Friday, it all suddenly felt worth it. I have never been so proud!

A Seaside Themed Wedding in St Ives: Suzy & Christian

Kat

July 20, 2012

When the deputy editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine gets married, you just know it's going to be awesome right? Well Suzy & her fiance Christian didn't disappoint when planning their summer wedding. Choosing St Ives, Cornwall as the location, what could be more apt than a seaside themed wedding?! "We met at journalism school in London in 1999 and were friends for five years before we eventually got together," began Suzy. "Even though we live in London (and I'm from Oxford), we never discussed getting married anywhere but St Ives. It's the place my dad's been to on holiday ever year since he was a baby - so the place I've been to on holiday every year too. It's the most beautiful seaside town with gorgeous cobbled streets and the most spectacular beaches. It feels magical and we wanted to share it with all our friends."

A Vegas Wedding in the Cosmopolitan Hotel Pop Up Chapel: Ashley & Jeremy

Kat

March 19, 2012

Ashley & Jeremy are wedding photographers so were in Las Vegas at the same time as I was for WPPI. After the Airplanes & Blazers party (which I was also at...!) Jeremy was sitting at a table with Patrick from StillMotion (while Ashley was off in the bathroom) and Jeremy was telling Patrick he would love to propose. Patrick encouraged him, telling him if he proposed and they got married while they were all still in Vegas, Patrick would shoot it! When Ashley returned, Patrick proposed, right there and then by saying "Will you marry me...on Wednesday?!" So just 36 hours later, they were married in the Pop Up Wedding Chapel at the Cosmopolitan Hotel with all of their best wedding photographer friends from WPPI watching.

Recent Press: November 2011

November 26, 2011

Just a quickie to let say thank you to everyone that came to my first School of Rock (n Roll Bride)* yesterday. I had a great time talking to possibly the nicest bunch of girls (and one token guy - there's always one poor bloke at these things!) that I could have asked for for my first workshop. I'm now more excited than nervous for the next one! I'll have a few more photos to share with you soon, but here's one Shell took on her phone yesterday. This month I contradicted myself a bit by profiling someone who doesn't have her own blog but makes her business work without one. I wanted to show how Assassynation makes social media, in particular Facebook, work for her and her business.

Thursday Treats – 13th October 2011 + Rock n Roll Bride Magazine Madness

Kat

October 13, 2011

Last weekend I was exhibiting at The Designer Vintage Bridal Show. It was so exciting to meet so many of my readers and hurrah for you all being brave enough to come say hi! I think the Rock n Roll Bride Magazines may have helped... The buzz around the mags at the show was tangible. Everyone was asking us questions about it and wanting to get their mitts on a copy. Words can't express by enamor at seeing every person in the place walking around with a copy of the magazine! In fact many of you even tweeted me photos of you (or your pets!) with the magazine afterwards which made my day!

All will be properly revealed really soon, but needless to say I'm pretty darn excited about it. Could this be a Rock n Roll Bride Magazine? ...And a FREE one at that?

Tickets for the show can be purchased online here.

So I found out last week that Marie Claire Australia are going to re-run my article that appeared in the July issue of the UK version of the mag. Wooo...Australia is like, BIG. I'm over the moon and so so thrilled that my Aussie readers will get the chance to see me in print. So thank you (again) to Marie Claire Magazine. I am beyond flattered that you've found me interesting enough to publish twice! I'll be sure to let you all know when the Australian edition is in the shops. So where else might you have spied my ugly mug this past month then?
